The Importance of Pest Control

January 10th, 2022

Pest ControlThe best time to think about pest control is before an infestation ever occurs. The damage that a pest infestation can wreak on your home, and health, can be extensive. Establishing and maintaining a regular and effective pest control solution for your properties is essential because:

Pests will damage your home

There are many pests that can infest and damage your home’s structure and systems, but two specifically come to mind: termites and rodents.

Termites eat away at the wooden framework of your property, causing devastating damage that can cost tens of thousands of dollars to repair. Not to mention the cost of eliminating the infestation, and the possible reduction in your property value if the building is a total loss.

Rodents don’t damage your home’s structure, but they love to gnaw away at insulation and wiring. You may notice that certain electrical outlets stop working as they make their way through the drywall, finally gaining access to your home’s interior. Once inside, they will locate any areas with food sources and begin looting nightly.

Pests can affect your health

Some pests are even more aggressive, attacking humans when contact is made. A few of the most likely culprits include spiders, ants, and wasps. Bites from certain spiders can be fatal, and if you have an allergy to any of these pests, coming into contact with them can be a literal life or death situation.

Many pests, like rats and cockroaches, spread harmful bacteria and viruses as well. Keeping your living and eating spaces free of these invaders is essential to maintaining safe food practices and good overall health.
